    Erh ... i'm not allowed to mention his name .... but can vouch that it works for both 550EX and 580EX ... performance wise very impressive. But CP did mention to him ( i was around bioing the battery pack ) that its more for the 580EX, works for the 550EX as well.

    any1 tried 580ex?
    can CP-E2 be used with the flash instead of CP-E3?
    diff is CP-E2 uses 6xAAs, E3 uses 8xAAs.
    1) I do not have 580EX.

    2) CP-E2 for EX550, CP-E3 for EX580

    3) Somehow some ppt use CP-E2 for EX580 too

    My advise is just go for CP-E3 loh. Why pay for old model when u can get a new one ?

    Confirm CP-E3 can be use for EX550 and EX580

    CP-E2 can be used with 580EX too, same type of connector, and vice versa.

    CP-E2 and CP-E3 almost the same lar, just that CP-E3 got two more AA batts, thus charge slightly faster, and also easier to load and unload as the batts are in a bracket or frame, just slide in and out of the casing. The big difference is in the flash, 580EX does have a significant faster charging cycle than the older 550EX.

    So if you got 580EX probably the CP-E2 good enuff. Cheaper than CP-E3 too.

    Anyway, two more batteries is still better loh. Got more power to shoot shoot shoot.

    By the way, CP-E3 got a better/nicer design wah.

    I still go for CP-E3 loh
